“It's Cheesy -- But in a good way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

My friends and I went to Sao Paulo's on a Friday night. In terms of ambience, the live jazz, low lighting, decor and cute waiter were pretty amazing and well worth a return trip. We were seated immediately and everyone was very attentive. We shared a bunch of appetizers and vegetarian dishes, which apparently were all heavy on the cheese. My parents are both from Rio, so I'm generally familiar with the cuisine but I have never thought of Brazilian food as cheese-laden. In any case, the heart of palm veg main was my favorite and I'd DEFINITELY recommend.

“Deliciously unusual and creative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011 via mobile

What a find. This is a creative restaurant with really interesting dishes and appetizers. The atmosphere is nice and the prices are reasonable. This is one of our favorite restaurants.
I highly recommend the shrimp dish served in a spagetti squash. It is excellent!!!

Awesome food, awesome happy hour.
Appetizer combo was average, entrees were really good.

Go there with a restaurant.com gift certificate and you're one happy person! :)
